My hubby (44) and I (46), have sailed only twice before having discovered cruising only last year. We have sailed with RCI and plan to cruise twice a year now. We did not want to get hung up on a particular cruise line and wanted a good cruise and a bargain cruise each year.
We opted for MSc as the price was good, *cheap! The itinerary was good and only a four hour flight to the sun. Having read all the negative reviews, we decided to not expect too much but to keep an open mind.
I won't go into flights, transfers, embarking, disembarking etc but will try to remain factual about the ship and facilities. Apparently, this ship sailed with only 700 ish guests and can accommodate at least 1000 more so by no means full. This needs to be considered in relation to how I found things.
Inside on deck 9. Convenient for lift and stairs. Usable floor space. Plenty of storage. Bathroom adequate. Shower terrible
